Scare Yourself Silly on these Superb Fredericksburg Ghost Tours

As one of the most historic cities in the country, Fredericksburg is also one of the most haunted. Visitors to the venerable Rising Sun Tavern are regularly spooked by the voices of great colonial figures like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, while other phantoms occasionally appear at Fall Hill or Chatham Manor. If you’re looking for a frighteningly good time in Fredericksburg, we recommend the following ghost tours:

1. Witches, Ghosts, Thieves, and Mayhem Tour: Board the Olde Towne Carriage for a 60-minute foray through the eerier parts of historic downtown. This one is great for the whole family.

2. Fredericksburg Hauntings: Your costume-clad guide will lead this 90-minute, candlelight walking tour that entertains and informs as you hear the sordid history of various colonial residences and battles.

3. Deep Creek Vintage Ghost Tours: on this tour through a haunted 18th-century estate home, you’ll learn about and get hands-on experience with all the scientific gadgets professional paranormal investigators use to separate the spooky but ultimately explicable from the certifiably supernatural.
